Seems as if I'm not the only one who holds the opinion that as a downbeat, acoustic band they'd be pretty good, but they just cant write Death Metal riffs to save themselves. I quite like the acoustic (mostly) DVD, but by god their metal stuff is insipid and dull.

I think the greatest criticism that can be leveled against them is that their songs sound very contrived and hastily bolted together. As they stand at the moment, they really succeed at neither element - the metal parts are weak, and they spoil the mood of their mellow parts.


That's my point of view on them. I once had a girl ask if I listened to Swedish death metal like Opeth. Shocked

Opeth are similar to flower metal, in a sense that it's for pussies who can't handle real metal.
Nice...

So it's literally impossible for someone to like Opeth, but also appreciate bands like Ignivomous, Infester, Megiddo, Rites of Thy Degringolade, Denial, Excommunion, etc?

No it's not flowery at all. It's hardcore leather and chaps gay.

Yeah, who really cares what anyone else does?

It's not like it affects us at all.

No, of course it doesn't -- don't let any doubt creep in on that score -- it's not like a society of morons produces moronic rules, or when parasites become the majority society gets parasitic, or when a genre has a majority of hipsters and fakes the music gets hollow. No, no, no! Just say no to these disturbing assertions of reality.

What a big pile of bull. How does bad mainstream-music affect the underground? Besides, you are not in the position to judge over the musical taste of other people. If they don't like metal and rather listen to Kanye West so be it. It's not about people's taste but about their deeds and intentions.

No - there's non-metalheads that like some metal and there's people with eclectic tastes. If you're not irked by Opeth, or have wasted a lot of time listenning to them you are not a metalhead. And obviously I've just offended a fan!

1. Bad mainstream metal brings more idiots into metal.
2. Oh, then, neither are you. You are of course judging their taste to be OK but still judging it.

Abject stupidity is pretty offensive, yes.

Think of it this way: if someone recorded Beyonce songs on death metal guitars, would it be death metal?

Opeth sounds like Coldplay to me, really Wink
